"I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn't be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage."- Roald Dahl
This week the students will be writing their first two body paragraphs of their literary analysis essay. By Friday October 20, students should have typed for Google Classroom their setting analysis and their first craft claim paragraph. Although students will have some class time, they will still need to work on this outside of school.
The students received the literary analysis assignment last Thursday. I went over how I have spaced out the assignment. They will write the last two paragraphs the first week of December, and then write their lead and conclusion paragraphs the second week of December. The entire essay will be due Friday December 11. The assignment is located on my portal for you to view as well.
This week the students will learn about subordinating conjunctions as they continue to master the use of the almighty comma. This means they will be able to write and identify simple, compound, and complex sentences.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Enjoy your week!
